What’s The Matter With You?

What’s The Matter With You?
What’s The Matter With You?

Isn’t it odd seeming that so many people living within America’s borders will place at least some of the blame upon the murderer if they kill someone by any other means than a firearm but, if the murderer did use a firearm, they place the blame on the gun and the murderer’s ability to possess it in the first place?

The logical disconnect is so broad and stark that it’s almost as if it’s not the murder that bothers them in the first place and that the gun grabbers want to disarm the American people for some other reason. That’s definitely something to keep in mind during the upcoming 2014 elections.

Why Won’t Obama Listen?

Posted in Humor, Politics on January 12th, 2014

A large number of Americans and even some small percentage of Liberals and Progressives regularly complain that Obama is too separated from the populace at large and just doesn’t seem to listen to them.

Obama - Gun Control
Oh Yeah. That’s Why Won’t Obama Listen

It’s really quite simple. The boy just can’t stand anything he hears when he does listen to us. Oh well, words will only go so far anyway in keeping a People free from oppression by enemies either foreign or domestic.

It Has A Familiar Look

Posted in Politics on January 4th, 2014

A photo by George Roelofson of WTHN showing a long line of Connecticut residents waiting to register their guns and ammunition to avoid the state from declaring their legally purchased property illegal contraband has gone viral and is rightly sending chills down the backs of some gun owners.

CT Gun & Ammo Registration Line
It Has A Familiar Look

The unhappy shades of Weimar Germany seems to be haunting Connecticut, warning any and all who can remember that sad period in history of just what such registrations can lead to. Given America’s current economic straits, which also bear some resemblance to the Weimar Republic, and the current Regime’s vilification of certain propertied classes and groups, such warnings may well be such as to be heeded by the wise.

Yep, We’ve Seen Queues Like That Before

History has already given us a stark lesson in how one sort of government mandated queue can easily lead another, worse sort. First it’s the registration and restriction of citizens’ firearms; later it’s possibly the registration of “undesirable” citizens.

Police Beating
The Consequence Of Unchecked Authority

Even if one chooses to deny that “it could happen in America,” it’s very hard to deny that a disarmed and cowed citizenry consolidates power in the form of force in the hands of the State and its enforcers. We certainly don’t need to run afoul of Godwin to warn of where that can lead. US and world history as well as both domestic and international news and currents events should be enough to make it clear that the police, when left unchecked, are as dangerous to society as the criminals they are meant to deal with.

So yes! There’s plenty of reason for Roelofson’s photo to both “go viral” and to strike a chord of fear and worry in the hearts and minds of freedom-loving Americans.
